    Sam Cooke, later recorded by Cat Stevens and Jimmy Buffett

    Another Saturday Night

    Another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody
    I got some money 'cause I just got paid
    How I wish I had someone to talk to
    I'm in an awful way

    (Ouch)

    Lonely Is The Night - Billy Squier 




    Billy Squier is a (MA) home boy?   Just saw that he was born and raised here.  It is rare that he is ever mentioned as a Boston / local music success story.    Or perhaps it is I that never noticed his name on any lists, but I can't imagine that I could be *that* oblivious.   :)

    Is his name (often) missing when it comes to handing out local mentions, or am I just blanking?   

     

     

    [/QUOTE]


    Talk about "lonely"...!

    Consider, if you will, the sad case of Billy Squier, who in a much simpler and more ignorant time, was virtually banished from the rock world due to an ill-considered, campy video  (and no, not of the tommy-pamela lee varie-tay).

    He is like one of those poor souls who spends decades on death row, only to be exonerated by evidence that fell behind the filing cabinet.

    Billy really deserves his own thread...and yes, his relative status among boston's musical homies.

    I figure the least we can do is a tribute album...or maybe his own reality show.

    I been alone
    Always down
    No one cared to stay around
    I never change
    I never will
    I'm so afraid the way I feel

    Re: Only the Lonely

    Tears for Fears - Mad World (later re-arranged brilliantly and performed by Gary Jules and Michael Andrews for the movie Donnie Darko)

    Children waiting for the day they feel good
    Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday
    Made to feel the way that every child should
    Sit and listen, sit and listen
    Went to school and I was very nervous
    No one knew me, no one knew me
    Hello teacher tell me what's my lesson
    Look right through me, look right through me

     

    And I find it kind of funny
    I find it kind of sad
    The dreams in which I'm dying
    Are the best I've ever had
    I find it hard to tell you
    'Cos I find it hard to take
    When people run in circles
    It's a very, very
    Mad World

    Awfully lonely here.

    While experiencing this lonely downtime, why don't we get it together to make a list of songs about lonliness and missing someone or someone(s) --  or whatever.  

    Some of the best rock songs / ballads are about misery and lonliness.  Only the lonely know why I cry.   :D

    "Only the Lonely" --  Roy Orbison
    "Missing You"" --- John Waite



    NOTE:  Typos will be ignored.  :)

    Hey, thanks.   What's nice is that quite a few people have come out of the woodwork, so maybe it's not as lonely as it was a few days ago.   I hope that trend will persist.  :)

    Sad Song, Hardy Hemphill

    Can't isolate Sad Song on this page, but this is the only one I can find that plays the whole thing.  The beginning is very soft, but stay tuned...the piano comes in at about 30 seconds.
